This is the place to stay in Queensland if you want to experience lowland rainforest, beaches and islands whilst being thoroughly spoilt. Mick and Sue's verandahed property set in tropical grounds is spotless, screened, quiet and yet easily accessible. There is something for everyone here, be it the variety (including home-made fare) at breakfast to the wildlife (large and small)... More

We spent our first week in Australia at Licuala Lodge at Mission Beach, Queensland. It was a perfect introduction to the tropics. The hosts, Sue and Mick, went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. Located in the rain forest, it has an exquisite garden, beautiful pool with waterfall and a visiting cassowary family. Our room... More

Pre holiday information was very comprehensive, and we stopped off in Innisfail (on Mick and Sue's recommendation) for a bite before getting to Licualu. We arrived late at night to a warm welcome (after a couple of glasses... More

Due to our tight itinerary we could stay for only 2 nights. Breakfast was great, the rooms very clean and our hosts superb! We immediately felt at home at Licuala Lodge and definitely want to come back! Uli and Mats, Germany

Having read other Trip Advisor reviews we decided to go to Mission Beach for our 15th wedding anniversary weekend. Living in Cairns, Mission Beach is only a 2 hour drive south. We definately have found the best place to stay at Mission Beach. Mick and Sue are wonderful hosts - the rooms are clean and airy, the breakfast fantastic and... More
